Cafe Georgio Closes Doors For Good

Gift certificates will be refunded.

on Donati Road closed its doors for good on May 14.

According to the restaurant's website, the owners said the reason they closed was because it became a physical challenge for them to continue.

Customers with gift certificates should mail them to Cafe Georgio, 24 Donati Rd., Pittsburgh, PA 15241 and the owners will send you a check for the full amount. Be sure to include a self-addressed envelope. The owners would like to close their books at the end of June, so they ask customers to send in the gift cards as soon as possible.

The owners would now like to lease the cafe as "turnkey" and said there is a liquor license available. Those interested should call George at 724-255-2185.

"This was and is a very difficult decision to make," the owners wrote on their website. "Thank you all for being more than just customers and for sharing your lives, laughs and milestones.

"We love you and thank you for 20 great years."

What a shame. We enjoyed this quirky restaurant for many years and had memorable dinners there. Good luck to the owners -- we'll miss you.

Loved this restaurant. The food was always superb...one of Pittsburgh's best hidden treasures. They will be sorely missed.

I'm sorry to hear that Cafe Georgio has closed.  It was a great little restaurant. Cafe Georgio opened on Donati Road when the Pioneer Inn closed on the current site of McDonald's on Fort Couch Road.  I don't know how many people remember the Pioneer Inn.  It dated back to the time of the Revolution, and  local farmers had meetings there during the Whiskey Rebellion.  It was a restaurant we often frequented.  The original building was made of logs, and an addition had been put on that was (as I recall) partially logs.  It was a significant piece of the history of the area, and it still bothers me that it was torn down and replaced with a ubiquitous McDonald's.
